When the wind blows, by James Patterson. This was my first James Patterson novel. I was in NYC this past weekend, so I thought I would take this paperback along for the bus ride there and the train ride back to DC. The book is about a veterinarian (Frannie), an FBI agent (Kit), and a eleven year old girl (Max) who can fly. Max is part of a genetic research project initially designed to prolong life expectancy and leads to mutations. In addition to having wings and being able to fly, Max has other "super powers". The book is a page turner. However, it does not have any scientific depth nor is it really a clever murder mystery. That being said, it served its purpose as companion on a bus ride.
